Kolisi had gone on a hiatus for a couple of weeks, which she claimed was refreshing for her mental well-being. The wife and mother advised that her followers take her free tip to care for themselves and return stronger.

Rachel captioned her Instagram post:

“I took a very unintentional but MUCH needed break from social media. And did a whole lot of praying ⬆️ ❤️. Feels kind of awkward doing a posts again actually. I have some amazing things coming up that I’m excited to share with you all. But mostly here to encourage you. If you haven’t taken a break from SM lately – I HIGHLY recommend it. The chaos around us will continue, peace has almost become a privilege, prioritise it.”

Self-care is good healthcare

Briefly News spoke to a clinical psychologist to find out more about the effectiveness of taking social media breaks. The psychologist, Vuyolwethu Tuluma told us that:

"Anything we consume in excess as human beings has an impact on thoughts and behaviour. Social media can also affect a person’s cognitive functioning. You may become easily distracted and struggle with concentration. It can even alter your reality, making a person asocial. It is important to not only take a social media break but to always be aware of it’s impact on your functioning."

The Kolisi family now lives in Paris, away from relatives, so it is understandable why she might need a break from the chaos of the outside world. The star revealed that she prayed a lot during her break and announced that she has “exciting” things to share with her half a million Instagram followers.

Taking a break is self-care

Briefly News also recently reported on one woman who took to social media to open up about her life, which touched and inspired many people online. Many people could relate to the woman's content, and it gained massive attraction on the video platform.

The online community thanked the woman for sharing her truth and being genuine with her viewers. Social media is undoubtedly one of the most remarkable interventions ever created by humans, as it has facilitated communications, quick access to information and research, advertising businesses and so much more. But just like everything in life, there are pros and cons.
